Lufthansa and Germanwings Enhance Partnership Benefits for Passengers

Miles & More members can now exchange miles on all Germanwings flights and also collect award miles.

The same fixed mileage amounts for individual booking classes that currently apply to Miles & More members on all Lufthansa flights now also apply on Germanwings flights. For a domestic flight, for example, Miles & More members will receive up to 1,000 miles and for a flight to a Germanwings destination in Europe up to 1,250 miles, depending on the booking class.

Since December 2009, Miles & More members have been able to redeem their miles for flights across the entire Germanwings route network. For 30,000 miles they can take off to a destination within Europe, and for 25,000 miles they can book a domestic flight with the airline. In addition, frequent flyers with a Miles & More HON Circle or Senator status who are travelling on a Germanwings ticket can now use Lufthansa’s Business and Senator lounges in Germany.

The Germanwings frequent flyer programme, the Boomerang Club, will continue to exist independently of the Miles & More partnership. Before each flight, passengers who have both a Miles & More and a Boomerang Club card will be able to select the frequent flyer pro-gramme in which they wish to collect miles.

“Thanks to the closer collaboration with Germanwings, our Miles & More members will have even more opportunities to collect and redeem award miles,” said Thierry Antinori, member of the Lufthansa German Airlines Board with responsibility for Marketing and Sales. “We will continue to pursue our strategic approach so that both airlines can develop their product and their flight schedules independently. At the same time, however, we will be able to offer our joint customers significant added value.”

In the next phase of the cooperation, starting from the beginning of 2011, interline fares will be available for Lufthansa and Germanwings flights. This means that travel agencies and Lufthansa sales points (call centres and ticket counters at the airports) will be able to book and sell an outbound or return flight with both airlines in a single transaction and from a single source.

Lufthansa and Germanwings are planning to cooperate in the corporate travel segment from the beginning of 2011 so that they can extend the benefits of their partnership to their corporate customers.
